IPv6 - Protocols, Implementation and Migration

Course:  MFIPV6
Duration:  2 Days
Level:  II
Course Summary

Understand IPv6 in-depth with this practically focused training course.

IP version 6 (IPv6) is widely recognized as the protocol and network standard that the Internet, mobile networks, mobile devices and all IP networks, will ultimately migrate to. This practically focused IPv6 training course provides a solid insight into IPv6 features, benefits, operation, co-existence with IPv4 and migration to IPv6.

Where ever possible the class will reference the clients current and planned configurations and practical demonstrations will be included.
